New TECNIS® Symfony IOL - Implantable Lens

The New TECNIS® Symfony IOL is an implantable lens that significantly improves vision after cataract surgery and corrects presbyopia (the need for reading glasses). The latest addition to the TECNIS® Family of IOLs offers new optical technology for providing an Extended Range of Vision.

TECNIS® Symfony IOL Extended Range of Vision IOL delivers a continuous, full range of high-quality vision with incidence of halos and glare comparable to a monofocal IOL. If you enjoy activities such as reading, boating, quilting, playing golf, sightseeing, or surfing the internet, the TECNIS® Symfony IOL allows you to lead an active lifestyle.

Non-Toric version and a Toric version for patients with astigmatism


The elongated focus of the TECNIS® Symfony lens leads to:

  • A continuous range of high-quality vision for near, intermediate, and far near distances.
  • Halo and glare comparable to a monofocal (distinct single focus) IOL.

Extended Range of Vision Following Cataract Surgery

The TECNIS® Symfony IOL lenses are the only lenses in the United States that provide a full range of continuous high-quality vision following cataract surgery, while also mitigating the effects of presbyopia by helping people focus on near objects.

In clinical studies, the Symfony lens:

  • Provided seamless, day-to-night vision. Patients could see objects sharply and clearly at near, intermediate and far away distances, and points in between.
  • Demonstrated a low incidence of halo and glare, which may be perceived as rings or blurring around bright lights. Glare and halo can sometimes affect an individual's ability to drive at night or to perform other visual tasks.
